Project: More 1:6 Scale Furniture (Part 3)

How to upholster the chair:


Make a cardboard template of the seat and back (do this before making the chair, its easier).


Cut a strip of wadding and using PVA glue, stick all the pieces onto it face down. When the glue is dry, trim around each piece.


Cut a piece of fabric about 1/2 inch wider all round. Cut the corners. 


Using your glue, stick two sides first, then fold corners in before sticking the rest down. (You will probably find you get lovely sticky fingers doing this step.) Try to keep it taught, but not so tight that it flattens the batting.


When you turn it over, it should look nicely padded like this.


Then you can glue it down on the chair. Then repeat this process with the back piece.


Once that's complete you may wish to trim the sides of the seat with narrow braid as I have done.

Happy Crafting!

It's Time!

Yes, it's time for another . . .


Today it's for all the lovely caring mothers who cook for their family every day of the week and for those of you who simply just love to cook or bake!

What would look better in the kitchen than a PINK refrigerator!


 With a matching PINK oven!


And pretty PINK saucepans to cook with.


Of course you couldn't begin to cook without PINK knives to chop the meat and vegetables. 


 A stylish PINK mixer to make some lovely cupcakes with PINK icing, would be nice too!

 

If you're going to bake, you would probably need some PINK measure cups as well.


Of course you couldn't possibly get through the day, without a PINK kettle/jug to make your tea/coffee.


And lovely PINK spotted mugs to drink from.



Then after you've done all that, you can finally sit down and enjoy your cuppa with a yummy PINK strawberry cupcake . . .


. . . you can find the recipe on Sally's Baking Addiction.

Have a happy weekend everyone!
Big hugs,
